      I am looking forward to the MR article. In fact, I may even buy the issue!

      Yes, it has been 10 years but thanks to continuous hounding about Z scale
      articles for some time now, MR has finally caved.

      For a while early in the life of the Val Ease Central, I tried to interest
      MR and Great Model Railroads in a Z scale article. After many years of no
      interest, last year Andy Sperandeo finally encouraged me to write one for
      MR. Of course that was the kiss of death to any article writing desires
      that I had...after all, I had become a specialist whiner about the dearth of
      Z articles. Now the tables were turned and I had the green light to write!
      But, that was a lot of work...pictures...good grammar...layout sketches...

      The sad conclusion is that I never did write the definitive Z scale article
      for MR, nor for any one else for that matter. Therefore I applaud the
      intrepid author of MR's November article...even if it is about a "suitcase"
      layout. Obviously my genius is contagious!

      However, dear Z friends, consider this fair warning! I know that this news
      may come as a shock to some but I plan to ruin your year 2000 with a series
      of articles chronicling the life story of the Val Ease Central Railroad for
      "Ztrack Magazine".

      Conclusion: if ya wanna see more reportin' on Z scale modelin', ya gotta do
      sumpin' yerself.

      P.S. Thanks BJKRONEN for your excellent replies and for sharing your
      experiences and insights with the Z_Scale forum.
